blood testing for underlying causes of PE

Postby mismac01 » Thu Jan 01, 2004 11:07 am

I am a new member, and I am five weeks pregnant with my second baby. My first pregnancy, I experienced severe PE and HEELP. My daughter was born at 29 weeks. She is doing great. I switched to a perinatologist and will deliver at a Level I University Hospital. Does anyone know the specific names of the blood tests that my doctor should be testing for (ie, lupus, protein S?, thrombo-something)? Thanks.
